 UNION MINERS AGAIN RUN RIOT  IN   THE   CCEUE   D'ALENE.  Special to The Tribune.  Spokane, April 2!).���The trouble  between the union miners ancl  the operators of the Bunker Hill ancl  Sullivan mines at Wardner, Idaho, wliich  broke out last Monday because of the refusal of the mine operators to pay the  union scale for unskilled labor employed  underground resulted today in the most  disgraceful and deadly rioting this section of the country has seen since the  labor Avar of 1S92.  One union miner is dead and another  mortally wounded, as the result of a volley fired by the strikers. Mills of the  Bunker Hill and Sullivan have been  blown up by the strikers with giant  powder. The property loss will amount  to a quarter' of a million dollars. The  work of destruction was done by Wardner strikers and union .sympathizers from  the Canyon Creek mines, which are  about twenty miles from Wardner.  A mob of nearly 1000 men,  armed and  masked, seized a train  of nine box  ears  and one passenger car at Burke and immediately  started  for' .Wardner,  where  they   arrived   at   noon,   being   met   at  Wardner Junction, a mile and a half out  of  town,  by a   great  crowd   of   union  strikers.    Tlie miners from Canyon Creek  brought with them 3000 pounds of giant  powder.    After  a  parley of two hours,  140 masked  men, armed with Winchesters, Burke in the lead and Wardner fol-  lowiag, .started with yells for the Bunker  Hill and Sullivan  mill and other  buildings, a third of a  mile from the depot.  They sent pickets ahead, and one of these  pickets fired a shot as a  signal  that the  mill  was abandoned.    This, was-misunderstood by-the main body  of the mob,  who imagined that the non-unionminers  in the hills had opened lire on  them, and  they began firing on  their own pickets.  About 1000 shots were  thus exchanged  betAveen  the  rioters  and  their  pickets,  and .lack Smith, one  of the pickets, formerly of British  Columbia, and a noted  figure iu drilling contests, was shot dead.  The  fatal  error  was discovered after a  few seconds' firing, and   Smith's   body  was brought down from the hillside.    By  this time the strikers had  taken possession of tlie Bunker Hill and  Sullivan mill,  which they found deserted, tlie manager  having directed his employes  not to risk  their lives by battling with tlie mob.  Powder was called for, and sixty 50-  pound boxes were carried from the depot  to the mill. The heaviest charge was  placed among the machinery. .Another  large charge was placed under the brick,  office building. Other charges.were placed  around.-the. mill. .Then the .boarding  Jiousc, a frame structure, was fired. Fuses  leading to the charges AA'ere lighted, and  the strikers, carrying the dead body of  the picket, retired to asafe distance.  At 2:20 o'clock the first blast AA'ent off.  It shook the ground for miles, and buildings in AVardner, two miles away, trembled. At intervals of-about thirty seconds, four other charges went off, the  fifth, being the largest,"completely demolishing the mills.  The loss to the Bunker Hill and Sullivan  company is estimated at from $250,000 to  $300,000.  In a-feAV minutes the strikers went back  to the train, the whistle was blown for  the stragglers, and the mob soon climbed  aboard, and at 3 o'clock���just three hours  after its arrival���the train pulled out for  Canyon Creek.  During the fusilade from the guns of  the mob, "Jim " Chayne^ a Bunker Hill  ancl Sullivan man, was severely shot  through the liips. / It is reported that he  3A^s_cai'i;iedJofTTjy_tiie jstrik'ers.^and^his,  J"."

The governor of Idaho called on president McKinley for 500 federal soldiers, to  be sent to the scene at Once,  The Dead-man Island Deal.  Special to The Tribune.  Victoria, April 29.���The provincial  government has in contemplation making  a claim for Deadman's Island at Vancou-  Arer, over which tlie Dominion authorities  claim control, as evidenced by the lease  made to Ludgate for his sawmill company. Premier Semlin said today that  the provincial goveanment had as late as  1895 assumed to have control of the isl-  lancl, and he did not know any reason for  a change of attitude. He intimated that  the question was uoav before the executive for definite action. This attitude;  of the provincial government gives importance to the issue raised at Vancouver  the other day, wheth r [attorney-general  Martin represents, in this connection, the  interests of the province or the interests  of Mr. Ludgate, his client, for whom he  has appeared; in every move.  Reduction and Refining Works.  Special to The Tribune.  Montreal, April 29.���-A syndicate of  of Canadian ancl American capitalists is  prepared to erect extensive reduction and  refining works  in  Canada, provided  the  Great Britain and Russia Partition China.  Associated Press:  London, April 29.���The annual banquet  of the Royal Academy AA'as held at Burlington-House this'evening. Replying-to  the toast, "Hermajestyand her.ministers,"  lord Salisbury said he did not AA'ish to  exaggerate the extent of the gratifying  agreement signed -with Russia, but in  vieAV of the relations AA'hich in the course  of the last half century had from time to  time preA'ailed betAveen the tAvo countries,  it AA'as a matter for congratulation that  they had come to an agreement  AA'ith respect to China, Avhieh to a certain  extent AA'ould preA'ent the likelihood of a  collision betAveen the interests and objects of tlie tAvo countries for the future.  Continuing the premier said: "We have  talked of alliances. In a certain sense  the phrase is a just one, but an alliance  in the sense that Avith any nation Ave AA'ill  go out to. Avar together and bear the cost  and danger together and for each other  can very rarely take place. The alliances  of which avc speak are alliances of good  feeling."  Referring to the international conference to be held shortly at The Hague,  lord Salisbury said : "Whether the peace  conference AA'ill effect any improvement  in tho relations of the nations avc do not  knoAV; but the .fact that such a conference has been summoned is^ a good omen  for future peace', and an augury on AA*hich  all aa'Iio value the interests of peace, civilization 'and Christianity may fitly  clAvell."

Kraenzeline, avIio is also the American champion hurdler, jumped 2-1 feet Bh-  inehes, breaking the American record of  23 feet 7 J inches, held by Meyer Princeton  of Syracuse Uiii\rersity.  Special lo The Tribune.  Ottaava,  April  29.���A bombshell has  .been hurled at the promoters  of   the Pacific cable scheme.    In   the senate  a private     agreement     made      away     back  in   ISO.'! "between   Great Britain  and the  Eastern   Extension   Cable Company was  brought  clown.      It   showed    that ; lord  Ripon on   October   17th,   ISO:', signed an  agreement  granting  a- monopoly  to the  Eastern Extension Cable Company binding Great Britain neither to lay nor assist  nor permit any one eJse to lay a cable to  Hong  Kong  or  Singapore.    A clause of  the  agreement  also  specifies  that  if   a  cable betAveen Canada and Australia mis'  uot laid in five  years  from the  date  of;  the agreement, then it Avould be deprived  of  any  connection   \vith  Hong Kong or  Singapore.    Five years  have,  of course,  expired  and  the  monopoly has become  permanent unless  Great  Britain buys it  out.    There is a provision in   the private  agreement that permits Great Britain to  buy it out for ��300,000 after a  year's notice has been given.  Sir Mackenzie BoAvell, on behalf of the  opposition, and Mr. Scott for tlie government, talked strongly against this document, which has just been unearthed, and  of its Avhereabouts all this time nobody  seems to be aAvare. V  Hon. Mr. Scott agreed Avith Avhat sir  Mackenzie BoavoII said. Great Britain  avus uoav'in faA*or of a subsidy and not of  a scheme of joint control. He could not  say that in '.1.887 it AA'as decided to be desirable that there should be joint OAvner-  ship. He referred to the agreement excluding Canada from its benefits as extraordinary. It bore out all that sir  Mackenzie Bowell said. He hoped Great  Britain avouIcI realize tlie efforts made to  check all-British cables. Unless the cable  Avas built now it avouIcI iiCA'er be built,  of that he Avas certain ; and uoav or never  meant that the monopoly would be  broken.  Senator Mills said the document A\'as  considered very gra\x��. ItAvould appear  there - never- had been a more serious  attempt'for a hundred years to cripple  the commercial groAvth of Canada in tho  interests,of monopoly. '_    of  Protecting an Author.

Mr.  Rutherford organized the delegation.  The delegates pointed out that the ground  taken by the oil men had now put  them entirely out of court. Two years  ago they Avanted protection to save them  from the Standard Oil Company, and  now they Avere found in arms Avith those  avIio they had preA'iousIy declared to be  their enemies. While the delegates had  oA*ery consideration for tho coal oil industry, tliey did not think it ivas fair to tlie  Whole dominion that tliey should, pay  taxes  Of 85  pet'  cent.

The members of the  committee think that they avi'11 have the  sanction of the government, and Avill, at  least, press for its assistance.  Special to The Tribune.  Kari.o,  April  29.���The   first gang  thirty   men, on   their   way  to commence  Avoiic in the, Lardo for the Canadian   Pacific, wore in town Thursday and left the  same night for the  scene  of operations.  This assurance that the .Canadian Pacific  is -commencing operations so early in the  season on this.much-needed piece of railroad   comes   as   a -.pleasant surprise  to  Kaslo.    While it Avas hoped   that  a railroad would be built in the Lardo-Duncan  couutry this  summer,  it   AA'as  expected  that  it: avou Id  be  built  by the Kaslo &  Slocan company, and that the  Canadian  Pacific would  build  later.    The line  located by the Canadian   Pacific  starts at  the townsite of Lardo, on  the  west side  of Kootenay lake, and   follows   the A\rest  side  of  Lardo  ri\'er, going   through the  pass near Duncan City, and then following tlie Lardo river to the end of imwiga-  tion on loAver end of Trout lake.    A spur  Avill be run to Duncan  City,  the  end of  navigation at the south end  of Duncau  lake,  so that they Avill haA'e   rail   and  steamboat communication AA'ith the Trout  lake and Howser lake districts,  containing the richest properties iu the country.  The Kaslo & Slocan proposed line  starts  from Argenta and folloAvs the east side of  Larcio river to Duncan City,  and   thence  to  Trout   lake,   almost   paralleling    the  Canadian   Pacific,  but  ou  the   opposite  side of the  river.    The  Kaslo & Slocan  liiay  change-'their..-route from   Duncan  City and run on the east side  of Duncan  lake and up Duncan river, so as  to haA'e  all-rail -communication  Avith Hall  creek  and other  rich  country up the Duncan  A^alley instead of the Lardo yalley.  The li'eAV Avlmrf Avhicli the-Canadian  Pacific has promised Kaslo for over a  year past will soon be an assured fact.

The  policy of the provincial government in neglecting  to furnish proper accommodation for the Nelson public school,  and at the same time refusing to allow  the citizens  to  take  over aiid maintain  the same, has   resulted  iu   the closing of  the two junior  divisions.    Nearly three  weeks  ago   the   Nelson   school   trustees  called attention to the fact that they required   two  additional   rooms  fitted up,  two additional teachers provided and an  increase of $125 in the grant for incidentals.    No attention  Avas  paid  to  this demand  and   no   acknowledgment  of tlie  same was recei\-ed from the department.  Accordingly the   members  of  the board  met last evening in the ollice of Dr. Arthur.    All  the cnieinbers   of   the  board  were present.    They talked the situation  over and  decided  that they  AA'ould not  be longer  ignored   by  the education department a.s so  many white checks, iind  since the  necessary accommodation and  , money Avere not forthcoming they unanimously decided  to close  the tAvo junior  rooms. ' The secretary avas instructed to  notify the education  department  of the  board's decision, Avhieh he did in the following letter approved by the board:;  '.-.NELSON, April 29th, 1899.' (.'..���_-  To tho Superintendent of Education.  Dear Sir: I am instructed to stale that no answer has  been received to my letter to the minister of education,  under date of tho 10th instant, asking for a:i additional,  grant of <125 for incidentals, the immediate flnisliiigof,  tho two rooms, upstairs in the new building, and tho '',-'"'  appointment of two additional tcacliTj. .During, the  laist,two weeks the two junior departments have had a  dally average attendance of over sixty pupils each, and  noV.*-pupils 'irc coining in at the rate of ton and more per  week. These rooms aro h.idly ventilated, and the health  of the pupils is endangered by overcrowding. The board  has therefore decided to close these two rooms on Mny  1st, and keep them closed until additional accommodation.  is provided. As no! ideation' of thecongested state of these  rooms was given in ample lime to correct it by May 1st,' .  the responsibility for closing the same must rest with the  'department. Mgnod) E. C.

If you happen to have in your possession tlie particular French coin knoAvn as  a live franc piece, you may unwittingly  be a millionaire.  Such, at least, is the belief shared by  hundreds upon thousands of credulous  Frenchmen and Frenchwoman, many of  whom spend most of their spare time destroying* quantities of five franc pieces in  the hope of realizing a fortune.  Dr. Marco-Leonardo Nardez',' the well-  known numismatist and one of the recognized authorities on coin lore, speaking  of this curious condition of affairs said:  "It is quite true that half France still  believes in the existence of great wealth  hidden in a five franc piece, although  many numismatists hold that the fortune in question was long ago discovered  and appropriated-by one of tlie Rothschild family. t c  "The story of the strange five franc  fortune legend may be briefly told. A  five franc piece, to begin with, is a silver  coin, and is worth about 4s. 2d. Napoleon I was A'ery anxious to make the  coin a popular one, and with this end in  view he caused it to be circulated everywhere throughout France that he had  inserted in one of the silver pieces before  it left the hunt* a bank note or order for  5,000,000 of these same five francs���  roughly, about ��200,000. Whether he  . really did this or not I cannot say for  certain, but the weight of evidence  would seem to show-that it was done.  -"In  tlie   manuscript memoirs  of   the  war, it  isoxpressly stated that. the :enir  pcror.-. inclosed^ a nota ,oii  the Bank of  France, duly "signed .by tlie governors of  ���      that  institution,   in," a   split  five, franc  1 ��*��� ;t'bgem5,",pVarth^  f. dows: " IiK=this AviayiifeAYasf impossible: to  ike"ep/track"���"ofi!��|ie iii'eky;."Cdiir.l^"V*"l���;.  ,! .,, v'.'=rrhe":j,iieAA*iS of * tJliig-odd^btt'er-j***' .spread  nD    TJ   rfi    "& u      "m     u du"J' QU Q.,u-Tn-Jn        Lb^T]    n n  q��    u iu n'   u  u ��/j " ,��^    u h "      " "       r  "fai:*;anjl widel aiidVtlie J(fiv^"��:&ajl(3 pi^e'e ;  "ISeeh ^  ,....- ��� .-,..���.,.���.  .Belgiinii; aiid everywhere. .

''There are niany stories ��� dealing Hyith,  , reputed finds of" the fortune. Indeed  ["^whBir^Jumv^b^^^  France it is comiuou' to hear people whisper, 'He inust have found Napoleon's  famous coin.'  "Some assert that tlie enlpel'Or kept  the coin himself, but this hardly agrees  With Napoleon's ��� character. Still it is a  current, theory tliat soine of tile mqney  which enabled Napoleon III to reach the  imperial throne was found in the lucky  silver pifice, which his mother, queen  Hqrtense, had wheedled out ol her  brothc'r^n-law.  "It was also common talk tliat general  IJoiilanger had acquired the famcius coin  until the discovery that his money supplies dame from the duchess d'Uzes set  tliat belief at rest.  * ''The most likely explanation as to why  the five franc piece fails to turn up is  that baron Ferdinand de Rothschild, a  French member 'of the great Jewish  banking house, secured it. This account  states that baron de Rothschild, haying  Vienna Restaurant  Baker.street, between Josephine and  Hall streets, Nelson,  MEALS AT ALL HOURS, DAY OR NIGHT  BAKERY IN CONNECTION  FAMILY AND PASTRY COOKING A SPECIALTY  ONLY WHITE HELP EMPLOYED  R-  *BCXT*RE"5r:l     E'SOFRIBTOR  LOST.

Jacobson, feed merchant, Vernon  atresl, Nelsou, li. C.  investigated the tradition and found  sufficient proof of its truth, deliberately  set to work to locate the note.  "He quietly bought in and collected  e\'ery five franc piece hc could gel;, and  his agents were notified to preserve'and  forward to Paris every five franc piece  which reached them in l��uropc, .Asia,  Africa and America. In his office tlie  baron kept three trusty men hard at  work bisecting the coins.  "Some say tliat he had invented a plan  for welding them together again, so as to  defy detection ; others maintain that he  melted down the silver and sold it to the  government en bloc. The Avork was  colossal, but in the end the baron's system is said to have conquered.  "He found the note for 5,000,000 francs,  having spent nearly 1,000,000 to obtain  it. The order aviis duly presented at the  Bunk of France and cashed by that institution.  "Plausible as this narration may seem,  the great mass of- Frenchmen refuse to  credit it, and go on, year after year,  splitting open tlieir five franc pieces to  look for Napoleon's note. It is certainly  a tantalizing though that somewhere in  the world a check for ��200,000 is knocking about hidden in an ordinary silver  coin worth less than fh'e shillings.  Good Story of the Sirdar.  T. P. O'Connor relates aii amusing  story of the Sirdar. When lord Kitchener was starting his list for the ��100,000  for the Gordon college, he xvks advised  that the best step he could take Avas to  attend a lunch in the city Avhieh lord  Rothschild would give. The lunch Avas  duly ordered. In the middle there A\*as  an awkward pause.

BALL  Rothsehild's face Avas sonieAvhat flushed  and his eye shone brightly, it Ava.s easily  seen that the great banker was not  pleased ���and he Avas not. For \\rhat had  happened was this: Lord Kitchener,  "with that shrewd sense he has -especially where mouey is concerned -saw* that  the amount of the subscriptions of others  AA'onld largely depend on the amount  Avith which lord Rothschild would start  the list, lbs lixed tliat amount in his  own mind at ��*")()00. 'When lord Rothschild came up to him, Kitchener asked  Avitli characteristic bluntness Avhat  amount hcAvished to subscribe. ".��1000,"  replied lord Rothschild, a little taken  aback. "I want ifiiJOOO," said Kitchener,  "and moreover, unless 1 get it I shan't  stay to lunch." The news spread through  the room; surprise! and horror were oh  every face: and several of the distinguished guests went up to Kitchener to  remonstrate, Wolseley at the head. They  might as well have talked to the  Egyptian Sphinx. "cfiiJOOO or I go!" said  Kitchener, lie got the ��~>Q()(), with the  result lie had anticipated���four 'other  niulti-millionaires had to follow lord  Rothschild's example, and Avhen the  lunch Avas over the subscription for the  Gordon hospital Avas well ^started with  .��25,000.  '  Another Lie Nailed.  Toronto Telegram.  Journals Avhieh have denounced sir  Wilfrid Laurier for his cowardly indifference to Canadians in the Kettle River valley are placed in a false position by the  Globe's statement that:  Although the proposition (the Kettle River Valley'  Railway bill) did not muster enough votes, it received  'substantial support. The premier and most of his colleagues supported it.  The answer to the Globe's statement is  to be found in the Hansard, Avhicli sIioavs  that the house of commons diA'ided on the  Kettle River Valley Railway bill on April  15th, 1898. The Globe says sir Wilfrid  Laurier supported the Kettle RiArer Valley Raihvay bill. The Hansard sIioavs  that sir Wilfrid Laurier did not support  the Kettle Rh'er Valley Raihvay bill.  Neither by AArord nor vote did sir Wilfrid  Laurier support air appeal for the simple  "justice'of allowing the Kettle Rhrer Valley raihvay to be built Avithout expense  to the country. Liberals accept as truth  the Globe's utterly false statement that  LUMBER  the *��� premier supported " tlie Kettle  River charter. In all its controversies  the Globe is prone to assume that everything that is useful to its argument is  necessarily true. The Globe's statement  that sir Wilfrid Laurier supported the  demand for justice from the people of  the .Kettle River valley is useful, but the  record of tin; vote shows that the (!lobe's  assertion is absolutely untrue.

B,  Tlie land transactions of the Columbia  <fc Kootenay land department, in Nelson  town lots, during' the present month, have  been greater than those during any corresponding month in the history of Nelson. The demand for residential property started much earlier this year than  formerly, but so far there has been no  abatement. During April the company  sold Ml lots, of an aggregate value of  $li),000, and as the lots were all sold with  liberal rebates for building, it may be assumed that in nearly every instance the  purchaser will take advantage of this condition by building.  D. \V. Moore, ore buyer for the Trail  smelter, was in Nelson yesterday. The  Trail smelter has not; yet commenced the  treatment of lead ores, but it has a large  reserve ou hand and a, start will be made  within the next few (lays.  As an evidence of the stiffening of the  values in suburban property around Nelson, it may be noted that the Nelson  Land <fc Improvement Company yesterday refused an offer of $2000 cash'for 22  lots in one block in Jiogustown. The  company prefers to sell alternate lots  rather than solid blocks.  The people of eastern Canada must  have a very fair idea of the demand for  residences in Nelson. Yesterday ex-slur-  ilf Robinson received a telegram from  Montreal in which the sender said that  she-had learned that he had a house to  rent, and requested him to telegraph a  description of the same and the amount  of rent required. The idea of renting a  dwelling house over 2500 miles distant  by telegraph is rather novel for even so  lively a city as Nelson. There is a chance  here for liouse agents to do a stroke of  business by communicating Avith OS St.  Urbain street, Montreal.  The members of the ladies aid society  of the Catholic church announce that as  the result of their social in the Queen's  hotel on Thursday evening the society  netted an even $100. The proceeds of  the entertainment will be devoted to the  furnishing of the new church.  Rev. Father Folchi of Spokane has arrived in Nelson for the purpose of holding religious services in Italian for the  benefit of the Italians employed in and  around Nelson.  Work A\*as commenced yesterday on  the laying of the water main on Victoria  street- Two blocks-arc to be laid on Victoria, street from Stanley street west.  The other streets upon wliich mains are  to be laid at once arc Gore street, from  Josephine to- Kootenay; Stanley street,  two blocks s6u!'1l from Gore., -and * on.  Houston-street, from Stanley-to Ward  street.'. The work is being done by day's  . A...E. -Hodgins has* another franchise  application today before the members of  the city-cbuncil. If'NeLson is to become  the'big place which everyone ."thinks it-  will he would like to have a charter for  an underground railway. Tic does not  contemphite immediate construction, but  preached by Rev. Mr. Rose in tho Baptist church. The services of the smelter  band have been secured for the church  parade.  All those who intend being present at  the dedication of Fraternity hall on Tuesday next are requested by the committee  having the matter in charge to come not  later than S o'clock.  F. W. Peters left for the coast last  evening ou business connected with the  adjustment of freight rates in Nelson's  sphere of influence, and incidentally to  pick ui> real estate bargains for the train-  way syndicate.  :���.  There was no meeting of the city council last evening, it being decided to let  the meeting go over till Monday evening.  The chief business of the council will be  the passing upon the applications for  franchises from the proposed tramway  and gas companies. Tlie probabilities are  thatli satisfactory arrangement will be  arrived at with respect to the tramway  company's application, and that with respect to the latter no amendment will be  made to the gas franchise which the  council has offered to two other projected  companies.  In competition with St. Louis and San  Francisco firms, W. F. Tcet/el & Co. of  Nelson'secured the order for the entire  assay outfit and supplies for the McDowell  sampling works at Nelson. This linn is.  tho only one in British. Columbia that  handles such goods iu large quantities,  and that it successfully competes with  firms in the large cities of the United  States shows that its management is wide  awake to the commercial interests of  Nelson.
